My current research aims to increase our understanding of the behaviours and movements of river fishes, and how anthropogenic modifications to the natural environment impacts on their behaviour. My primary focus at the moment is identifying how fish behave at weirs and fishways, and thereby assessing how effective fishways are at restoring river habitat longitudinal-connectivity. I incorporate a variety of telemetry techniques (PIT, radio and acoustic) to carry this out.
